Official Patron

per month's mission is to enable high quality Carnatic music publication and learning and to empower teachers to increase their reach. So it is free to sign up for basic usage. As a first tier patron, we'll support you in your music learning through articles posted on that address your requested needs or through email, whichever is more effective/efficient. Your needs will be prioritized over all users (please indicate your patron status in your email subject as "tier1"). 

You'll also get higher quota for limited features such as documents with audio and practice sets. The quota will be increased to be generally sufficient for committed music learning.

Music researchers and publications

per month
One of Patantara's goals is to enable "create once, view in any form" for Carnatic music notation.

If you're a music researcher or academic using for music documentation and publication, you may have special needs for your project. For "tier2" patrons (please indicate in email subject), we will incorporate and prioritize your publication needs into Patantara's road map. Note that this does not come with guarantees of timeline, though we generally try our best to bring out oft requested features as quickly as we can.

Tier2 members also receive additional quota for audio attachments to their documents on Patantara and for practice sets.
